    Pros

    Program managers have full authority along with high level of responsibility. Many programs run into millions of dollars and there is a good level of delegation of authority to respective CAMs

    Cons

    Internal processes especially export controls are very rigorous but at times they are too onerous and too long to process which delays the delivery of spare parts.

    Advice to Management

    Learn the business and understand the customer by getting better involved in every aspect of the business not just by depending on internal reviews.

    Pros

    The mission is to bring people home everywhere, every time. This makes it rewarding and satisfying to support our daily objectives. There seems to be lots of new opportunities to collaborate across Lockheed and likely new career opportunities for those interested in other challenges.

    Cons

    There has been a lot of transition after Sikorsky was acquired by Lockheed, but there has been good and positive communication throughout the year.

    Advice to Management

    Preserve the brand heritage and the culture. It makes Sikorsky effective and a great place to work.

    Pros

    The product that we produce is an amazing aircraft. I am proud to work on the helicopters that we make. My coworkers in the engineering group are supportive and are great to bounce ideas off.

    I do not have many downsides to list about this company. I am happy to be working here. The government training that is required for certain programs can be tedious but it is necessary.
